The Buccaneers are looking for some pay back as they prepare to battle the Cincinnati Bengals. Jameis Winston is seeking to bounce back from Saturday’s performance against the Minnesota Vikings. Considering that Saturday’s game was Jameis Winston’s first NFL appearance, the spotlight will be even brighter on him Monday night during his first game at home.

Mike Glennon’s 98 passing yards in 9 completions, showed that he his ready to come under the helm if necessary. Louis Murphy, returning from an injury sustained in camp, had 54 yards receiving on 4 receptions. (Welcome back Louis Murphy!) Khaseem Greene led the Tampa Bay defensive with 5 tackles and Henry Melton recorded the only defensive sack that night for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa Bay’s defense caused three turnovers in Saturday’s game and only allowed 3 points in the 2nd half of the game.
The Cincinnati Bengals are coming into Tampa following a win against the New York “Football” Giants. Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer quarterback Josh Johnson will be returning to Raymond James Stadium to do battle against his former team on Monday. He completed 11 of 21 passes against the Giants defense for 175 yards and Andy Dalton threw only 3 passes but completed them all for 31 yards, including a 3 yard dump to Mohamed Sanu for a touchdown. Josh Jonson will continue to take the majority of the back up snaps.Greg little acquired 65 receiving yards for 3 receptions and Former Buccaneer running back James Wilder’s son James Jr. led the Bengals in rushing yards with 53 and a touchdown. Nico Johnson had 10 tackles and Marcus Hardison recorded one sack. The Bengals defense Shut out the Giants for three of the four quarters of play.
It will definitely be an amazing game Monday night, with Jameis Winston commanding the Buccaneers at home! Cincinnati Bengal’s quarterback AJ McCarron said,”I’ll be ready to go no matter what. I’m not sitting out another game. I wanted to play last week. It was the doctors, Mr.Brown and coach Lewis, they’re the ones that advised me not to. I really didn’t have a say-so when it came to them.” So Expect to see AJ McCarron Monday night!! It’s going to be such an exciting game!!!!
